dc.description.abstractThis project extends research initiated by Major Dave Kenney into Special Operations Forces use of light-sport aircraft to gain an operational advantage over known and potential adversaries. Major Kenneys December 2012 masters thesis concluded that Special Operations Air Mobility Vehicles (SOAMV) enabled a proven doctrine for sustainable circumvention of anti-access and area-denial technologies. This conclusion sparked intense interest across USSOCOM and created demand for a feasible SOAMV program. This project represents a first step toward establishing a SOAMV program for USSOCOM by researching and developing a safe, effective, and efficient training protocol for training SOAMV fliers. If a full-scale program is not immediately required, building an established protocol will precisely define the cost and time required to build a SOAMV-capable force if needed. This syllabus project blends USSOCOM training standards with existing proven programs (Federal Aviation Administration Regulations) and adds military Tactics, Techniques, and procedures.en_US
